Dance Marathon raises more than $44,000 for Johns Hopkins Children's Center

Johns Hopkins students dressed as superheroes and danced all night Saturday to raise money to help sick and injured children.

The annual JHU Dance Marathon, part of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon program, raised $44,756.07 to benefit the Johns Hopkins Children's Center, which for more than a century has been providing compassionate and comprehensive care for children and their families.

Dance Marathon had 103 student dancers registered, with performances by different campus dance troupes and vocal groups. Face painters and a photo booth were available, and Dunkin' Donuts was on site to fuel the dancers until midnight.
